Here are the current stats:
We have received 318 submissions so far this quarter.
We have rejected 209 stories, sent 5 back for rewrites, held 9 for voting, and accepted 5 already (though we haven't notified the newest accepted author yet).
We have 36 submissions before the editorial board right now, and 54 left in our inbox.
Quarter-end is March 31st, so if you want your stories considered for the April issue, we need to receive your submission by midnight EST on the 31st. Stories received after midnight are considered for the July issue.
In other news, we have filled ALL of our vacant positions at FMM! We recently hired two editors and a publishing assistant. Look for their bios on our staff page when the next issue debuts.
